Asus Maximus VIII Hero and M.2 ssd

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I bought a Plextor PX-256M8PeG M8P Series 2.5" 256GB PCIE NVME M.2 Radiator Gen3x4 Internal SSD for my recent build. The M.2 SSD does not seem to be as fast as my Kingston ssdnow KC400 256gb sata ssd.

By saying not as fast I mean that it takes about 5 seconds longer to boot.

Do I need to change any settings like make PCIE X4 or anything in the boot manager to make my M.2 SSD boot faster?

Thanks!

i suggest trying to disable CSM then , but read up about it , cause it has special stuff for m.2 ssd when CSM disabled.

Thank you wertyrass. I read enough to give it a try and everything still works the same as far as I can tell. M.2 still doesn't boot faster than SATA 3 SSD. Still looking for any and all correct settings. So far for the M.2 I have enabled PCIE boot and turned on PCIE 4x, and now Disabled CSM.

Benchmarks for the M.2 are really fast though. Just cant seem to get the boot to perform better. And that my just be the way of the world.

Any other/more suggestions are welcome.
